Tyrese Gibson Talks Up The Transformers Movie

Tyrese Gibson has been interviewed by Crave Online about his role in the upcoming "Transformers" movie as well as other happenings in his life. The interview covers his character of Sergeant Epps and revealed that there in fact "about five real Transformers," including Bumblebee , Optimus Prime, as well as Megatron. We already knew about Bumblebee as well as the CGI-ready head for Optimus Prime. However, the others are unseen as of now.
    Crave Online: So let’s talk about Transformers. How was that experience?

    Tyrese: It was incredible. There was not one day that I showed up on that movie set and what I was exposed to didn’t blow my mind.

    Crave Online: Tell me about your role in the movie.

    Tyrese: My character’s name is Epps. I am what you would call a combat controller. My [job] is to communicate with all of the aircraft; any Blackhawk’s or any B2 Stealth Bombers or anything that has to do with aircraft.

    (Tyrese quickly jumps in to his Sgt. Epps character and begins to give me flight information. We are Alpha 2-7, 3 Degrees. Nine minutes north latitude…)

    Tyrese: I had to do that real fast cadence and it takes so long to learn that shit [that] it never leaves your mind.

    Crave Online: When did you finish shooting the film?

    Tyrese: We wrapped about two months ago.

    Crave Online: This being your first “effects” movie, was it difficult or strange acting in that environment?

    Tyrese: Actually, as difficult as it appeared to be it was pretty regular within all of that difficult shit. It’s not like they said put this green suit on and stand there like Tickle Me Elmo. It was the surroundings. It was about 40-50 foot Transformers in front of us that they built.

    Crave Online: So they are not just using CGI.

    Tyrese: No, they had about five real Transformers. Bumblebee, Optimus Prime was real. It was a gang of [them], they had Megatron.
